MY EATING DISORDER STORY

Sort order. Oct 21, Maryann rated it it was ok Shelves: This book is anti-feminist and insulting to non-theists. The author repeatedly equates mental illness with weakness, sin, and evil. She mentions regretting her acceptance to our culture's beauty standards and feminine ideals, yet she tells women how to act in order to live a life worthy of God's love.

This book can probably only be helpful t This book is anti-feminist and insulting to non-theists. This book can probably only be helpful to a person who looks and thinks exactly like this author, who only struggles with an internal war, and experiences virtually no other forms of oppression. Those looking for an in-depth analysis of the first step of admitting powerlessness over an eating disorder should look here, but only if they are also interested in a relationship with Jesus and are immune to extremely triggering and reductive language.

Jan 22, Sarah rated it did not like it Shelves: Is this even real? It reads like Christian propaganda about body issues. Certainly I have no problems with Christianity or if someone uses any religion to help recover from a problem, but really.. The journal entries definitely don't read like any person's real private thoughts and the extra quotes from other girls, what. Your mom suggested you play outside so you develop an eating disorder? I'm trying really hard to not judge, and not just because of the section of the book about Is this even real?

I'm trying really hard to not judge, and not just because of the section of the book about God teaching you not to judge, but really. Don't even waste your time. If you are looking for Christianity in eating disorder recovery there must be better options out there. Oct 01, Jennifer rated it did not like it Shelves: recovery. Horrible, horrible, horrible.

This book reads more like a checklist than a story of recovery from an eating disorder. I don't know if the author was just being evasive or honestly thought she was telling her story - but what I do know is that this book was a waste of time to read, especially if you are desperate for help. She made recovery too easy and too elusive at the same time. Jan 05, Gabriella rated it did not like it.
